  1. Developers should be forced to redevelop brownfield first but for obvious financial reasons prefer "not previously developed" land (I will avoid the phrase Greenfield as that has specific connotations). Purchasers also prefer less costly new homes on not previously developed land. Planning Inspectorate can also force local authorities to grant planning permission on not previously developed land. So between a rock and a hard place....
  2. I am genuinely shocked at the amount of new houses being built on farm land around Brundall / Blofield, Poringland / Stoke holy Cross and doubtless other fringes of Norwich. I don't understand where the extra demand is coming from these days....
  3. A MHCLG official told me face to face that Govt policy was to flood the market with new houses and depress house prices ...
  4. That's great, she was a lovely boat in her day. I still clearly remember the evening she was launched.
  5. Fifth one down, the Elysian with mahogany and cream top by the windmill, looks very much like Norfolk Spitfire, custom built for my father by R Bondon at South Walsham in 1970. It's still about, with original name. Last seen on the Yare near Langley Dyke summer 2019.
  6. I clearly remember summer '77. We had just finished our o-levels and were waiting to officially finish school. School canoe club took a few of us to Buckenham Ferry for some canoeing. Cant imagine elf-n-safety would allow that now.... Predictably we were all out on the Yare midstream when along came a commercial "coaster". We could feel the "pull" well before it got to us and was actually quite scary. It looked VERY large as it passed 😬. Memories!
  7. I find Vodafone disappointing both down by the river in Brundall at at my in-laws in Lingwood, which is quite open and flat
  8. For the last four years I have laid a wreath on behalf of the residents of my borough; sadly not this year. ☹️
  9. Maybe I'm wrong but does it not roughly balance itself out over time? Sometimes there is no credit and we put a pound in and use 30p, other times we find there is credit which we will use. I would guess that over our 3 years cruising we have probably ended up slightly "up" i.e. used slightly more than we have paid for. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  10. There was a threat a couple of weeks ago about getting anchors ) mudweights to hold on Bargate... Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  11. Assuming cable / rod links (not cable) between throttles and engines surely it's just a matter of adjusting one / both linkages until level throttle positions give same revs? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  12. Alitalia presumably? Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  13. I'm in almost exactly the same position, so will be watching responses avidly. Thanks to any in anticipation. Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
  14. This was well explored in another thread the other day. The general concencus there also, was "chuck it". I'd say 45° was the minimum Sent from the Norfolk Broads Network mobile app
